Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    1 cup quick cooking rolled oats
    1/4 cup raw unsalted sunflower seeds
    14 cup flax seeds, ground
    1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
    1/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
    1/2 cup dried apricots
    1/2 cup raw almonds
    1/2 cup dried cherries
    1/2 cup pitted dried dates
    1/2 cup powdered nonfat dry milk
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/3 cup agave nectar
    1/2 cup egg whites

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9 by 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray or use a non-stick pan.

Place all ingredients except the agave nectar and egg whites in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is finely chopped. Add the syrup and eggs and pulse until the mixture is well combined. It will resemble a coarse paste.

Transfer to the baking pan and spread evenly. Bake until just done, about 20 minutes. Cut into 20 squares.

  • I needed a gluten free version, so i adapted a little. I omitted the rolled Oates and the flour for puffed rice. I also swapped the milk for protein powder (thanks Nancye). Added coconut and very yummy. I had to add an extra egg white and used golden syrup as i had no honey. - 9/15/12

  • I was not able to rate this correctly - I meant to rate it very good. Isubstituted some of the dried fruit and used whey protein powder instead of the dried milk. Also, I used brown rice syrup because I didn't have any agave. Easy and tasty and good nutrition. - 6/25/11

  • I'm assuming it's 1/4 c. flax seed and not 14 cups? - 3/21/10

  • I'm taking them on a long trip coming up. They aren't yummy, but for me that is great as I won't be tempted to overeat them like purchased "nutrition" bars. I didn't have apricots or cherries, used dates & cranberries. SORRY ABOUT RATING, I MEANT TO RATE IT HIGHER, HIT WRONG STAR, CAN'T CHANGE IT! - 1/21/10
